Decent shooter, especially off the catch

Adequate defensive player
Only an average free throw shooter

R.J. Barrett is a very talented scoring wing player that can really put the ball in the hoop, as he scored 26 points in a superb performance he had in the 2018 High School McDonald’s All-American game.
Though he has occasionally struggled with shot selection issues, he is a vastly athletic, skilled scorer that could be a likely top 3 pick in the 2019 draft, and he could end up being a very good player in the NBA.
